Digital eBooks and educational databases are changing the landscape in and outside the classroom. Kids no longer want to read flat pages in a book or on a computer, but kids get excited when they can use technology to queue-up their favorite genre in fiction and non-fiction. Learn how to customize instruction to the medium you are using, whether it is for individual learning, large group and even at home while supporting common core standards.

Learning Outcomes:
Capstone Interactive eBooks are built on the same principles that make print libraries successful - content that spans the curriculum and covers the spectrum of reader interest and ability. All while being accessible through each schools existing digital cataloging system. This session will show educators how to link digital products into their instructional practices while aligning the information to Common Core. Using eBooks or databases will encourage the instruction of perspectives, text analysis, instruction & practice and reading across the curriculum. We will talk about the benefits of digital accessibility and show methods used by educators to incorporate our products into the classroom including lesson plans and activities. Let’s discover how Digital products with mobile accessibility from school and home, encourages reading and research for beginning, at level, and striving readers. Each attendee will receive a 60 day trial for Capstone’s Interactive eBooks and PebbleGo research and reading databases.
